The open-air onsen includes a "tachiyu" that is considered to be the deepest in Japan, where guests can bath standing, and a private open-air onsen. Dinner meals offer such a gorgeous lineup of dishes that they could be referred to as a "course of Japanese tradition". Popular ryokan with a large number of repeat visitors.
